In the Radius of a Rim is an involuntary memory, a tangible poem, inspired by a peculiar lived occurrence. The work is a re-composition of fragments that bear (biographical) witness of lived or imagined experience (for memory is nothing more than imagination backwards), leaving space for the continuous reconstruction of the poem.

Following the unification of the North and South of Yemen in the early 1990s, the Hadda Residential City was built in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a. It was one of the first modern constructions, a planned residential area, and the first instance in which the city was to receive a public park. Soon after, water was discovered and plans to dig a well were underway. The digging works would create streams of white snow-like foam, which filled the park and adjacent streets from an overuse of drilling foam to soften the grounds. As children, Salwa recalls, they would play in the white-mudded river, attempting to float objects in it, once losing a pair of sandals. In what she describes as a theatrical excavation, she has no memory of the water.
